♡ Melanie Martinez CRYBABY Tour NYC ~ Experience, Outfit, Photos + more! ♡

Hi lil'buns!

So before I begin talking about my experience at this wonderful concert, I must include a little segment of what Melanie's' music, aesthetics and personality mean to me.(Though I assume most of you reading this do lolz).

So Melanie Martinez is a popular musician who recently gained much fame after becoming one of the finalists on the voice in 2012, and has since released 2 albums "Dollhouse"! 

She has since gained more fans and recognition through her newest album from 2015 CRYBABY album centered to her ever blooming style and baby aesthetics.

I first came to know more about her shortly after the release of her music video Carousel (video link) and came to LOVE her after Pity Party's release. I recently found out that Carousel was used in a trailer for AHS: freak show --which I've watched and wasn't aware of somehow? Haha anyways! 

Little after getting more into her music, her CRYBABY album was released and I was so incredibly happy because her music is so unique!

Other than great music she releases, I also love love love her aesthetics. As someone who loves to wear pastel 24/7. She uses the pastel theme to advantage of adding her own style (baby theme), which work together so perfectly.

She embraces and is all about a childlike/baby theme. In other words I love that she really stuck to her own style and theme, and didn't become another clone being produced in the music industry. 

I'm sure there's more back story as to how and why she was able to, but its always nice to see a new artist express themselves through their music and not be tied down to limits made by their labels etc.

I found out about her Tour around November of 2015 and tickets for tour officially went on sale on December @12am (I had an email subscription to remind me lolz). 
I remember it was like a Thursday of Friday (basically the weekend) and having the page for the tickets open and once it was midnight *ding!* bought my ticket! I'd be seeing her on March 24th '16!

 I figured her tickets to perform in NYC would sell out if I waited to buy them --which they did! I was so glad to have bought mine on time and secured a chance at getting to see her in concert!

My outfit!

For my outfit to the concert, I knew I wanted the colours Baby pink, light blue black and white to somehow be incorporated into my outfit.
So I went with this look:

To The Concert!

I got lined up around 4pm, despite trying to get there earlier. But I managed to get to the front of the concert (about the 4th row) and I had a clear view of Melanie and her adorably set up stage! 

The concert was to begin at 7, but started a little closer to 7:30 which is ok! The opening band was pretty good, but people were getting impatient for Melanie.

A little before she begun performing, the audience suddenly turned into the closest thing I've experienced to a mosh pit! They were pushing and shoving and among the crowd my friends and I somehow migrated a little closer to the stage. 

Some people got pulled out of the crowd and I was witness to a fight...It was really crazy but all the more for an awesome experience!! From what I know, no one was seriously hurt. But one girl with asthma problems, i think she was having an attack, was taken to first aid. 

The stage was set up very adorably with Melanie's signature baby theme and a beautiful lighting scheme; a blue violet with devil red flashes which matched the beats to the song. Simple lighting but the stage props were all I was hopping for.

Speaking of her appearance was so cute! I had heard from others who attended her earlier concerts what it would be, but nonetheless i was still excited for it. 

She climbed out of a baby bed/court when the first song begun playing which was Crybaby. She basically rolled out of it as one side fell to the ground, stood up and begun singing right away. 

During breaks of the song is when she said a few greeting and a proper lengthier one after the first song. She said she'd been super busy with her tour but excited to be here with us aww~

She is actually very smol in person, I was kinda surprised?? I feel like this enables her to pass off with her style with more ease than if she were taller. Speaking of her style, I LOVE the material of the dress she wore. Had the style/cut been a bit different i'd have waned to own one. She pulled it off really well!

One thing about the entire experience with stood out to me the most, was how diverse the audience was! I saw people of all ages, backgrounds and ethnicity's' & races there. It really touched and amazed me how many different people she has come to inspire, and literally brought them all together. It made me really happy to see that with my own two eyes!


Currently there is only one thing I truly want from her store; her CRYBABY album vinyl! I loved records since I was much younger (my father has been collecting them for years, and since been exposed to them since I was a baby -I came to like them too!). 

I didn't actually get anything from the concert because the line was long and everything was overpriced. So after words my friends and I went to a Japanese restaurant had a small meal, discussed the night and went home shortly afterwords.

I am so very happy and grateful to have experienced this and made new friends there as well!
I'm looking forward to more upcoming music and videos from Melanie. As for now i still cant get enough of music. 

I have more photos of my ig! Do take a look~
